I previously purchased a Sage Mahogany. I like that one quite a bit. The Ava is not as good. It does not sound as good and it had a big line down the middle on the top that was not pleasing to the eye, at least not to mine. If I had seen this in a retail setting I would not have even tried it. Luckily Orangewood is taking it back.
I knew soon as I played it, it was a keeper. The sound is good, has a solid back, and it will get better sound as it ages. I can just tell, being playing guitars for 20 years, and I would definitely recommend this guitar
